2 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in scrubbing devices and has particular reference to a scrubbing brush in which a soap bar may be placed and dispensed.
5 The principal object of this invention is to produce a device of character designated which eliminates the necessity of employing a separate cake of soap in one hand and a brush in the other hand, but that provides a means of lo combining these elements so that the brush will apply the soap to the surface to be cleaned.
A further object is to produce a device wherein the soap may be easily placed within the device or may be readily removed therefrom.
A further object is to produce a device which is economical to manufacture, and one wherein the scrubbing operations conform with all the standard practices.
Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the preferred form of my brush;
Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 3 is a modified form of my soap container.
Ordinarily, in scrubbing a cake of soap is held in one hand and a brush in the other hand. The soap is rubbed over the bristles, after which the object to be cleaned is scrubbed with the soapy bristles.
Applicant has found that he can combine these two elementsnamely the brush and the soap, in such a manner that the soap will be automatically dispensed to the brush and thence to the object to be cleaned.
in In the accompanying drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred em bodiment of my invention, the numeral 5 designates the back of an ordinary brush having fixed bristles 6 and I. Between the bristles 6 and I I 4.3 form an opening 8 through the back 5 and reduce this opening slightly so as to form ledges 9 to receive the beads' ll of a container I! having cross wires IE to form the bottom. A hinged cover l4 carries a spring depressed plate l6 which is 50 secured to the cover I! through the medium of springs ll. Soap is shown at A, and a plurality of rotatable brushes l8 are mounted beneath the opening 8 in such a position that the same brush against the soap lying upon the wires I3. These brushes are rotated upon spindles l9 supported from the back 5 by bearing blocks 2|.
In the modified form shown in Fig. 3, the rotary brushes l8 are carried upon a flange 22 formed integral with the container l2.
The result of this construction is that when the soap is placed in the device, as shown in Fig. 2, and the brush is moved over a surface to be cleaned, the rotary brushes l8 will impinge upon the soap and carry the same around and into contact with the surface to be cleaned.
It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes relative to the material, size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. In a brush, a brush body of a size adapted to permit the same to be comfortably received in the hand of the user and having a central opening formed with a medial annular recess, fixed brushes carried by the end portions of the said body, a soap receptacle having an opening in its bottom received by the central opening of the said body and formed with a medial peripheral bead received in and supported by the annular recess, and a plurality of freely rotatable rotary brushes carried by the body transversely of the said receptacle opening and with the upper bristles defining the bottom of the soap receptacle and the lower bristles thereof terminating in the same plane as the fixed bristles.
2. In a brush, a brush body of a size adapted to permit it to be comfortably received in the hand of the user and having a central opening formed with a medial annular recess, fixed brushes carried by the end portionsof the said .body, a soap receptacle having an opening in its bottom and depending parallel flanges received by the central opening of the said body and formed with a medial peripheral bead received in and supported by the annular recess, and a plurality of rotary brushes carried by the depending flanges of the said soap receptacle transversely of the receptacle opening and with the upper bristles defining the bottom of the soap receptacle and the lower bristles thereof terminating in the same plane as the said fixed bristles.
A'I'I'I'LIO LO CASCIO.
